The articles featured here appear in the Fall/Winter 2020 issue of Across the Board, a publication of OPERA America for opera company trustees.

From OPERA America's President and CEO:

Take time now to review your company’s strategic plan. Are the goals still relevant? You’ll read in this issue how New Orleans Opera leaned on its strategic plan to define its next chapter.
